State-of-the-art manufacturing

production plant Neunkirchen
production plant Ledec nad Sazavou

Our products are manufactured on state-of-the-art production lines in our main plant at Neunkirchen in Germany’s Siegerland region and at Ledec Sazavou in the Czech Republic.

In Neunkirchen, SCHÄFER Container Systems manufactures polyurethane-coated and partly coated stainless steel KEGs for beverages. These kegs are used by worldwide producers of beer, wine and soft drinks. Since 1978, SCHÄFER has repeatedly set standards for reusable beverage containers with its innovative product ideas. Fully coated stainless steel KEGs are also produced here for industrial applications and purposes.

At the Ledec nad Sazavou plant in the Czech Republic, SCHÄFER has been producing the classical stainless steel KEGs since 1995.
Since 2002, IBCs (intermediate bulk containers) have also been manufactured here. The extremely positive development and rapid growth of this division soon required an extension of capacities. The construction of a new production hall in 2004 signalised the company's commitment to continuing growth.
